recently i started to play against several nidalee's in both ranked and draft. i have played with/as/against nidalee manytimes but i never found a proper counter to her, unless she is being poorly played.

nidalee has risen to my favorite and most hated champion in the game as of right now, so when facing nidalee and playing as nidalee does any one have tips on how to counter, and to prevent being countered when playing ranked and draft mode. please help.

Learn to dodge or stand behind creeps.

Seriously that's all it takes. If Nidalee is not landing her spears shes entirely ineffectual in the laning phase. Other than changing your gameplay the best hard counters for Nidalee are an AP with a snare or stun ability. Burst her, root her down and if you don't kill her she'll at least have to flee for her life.

AP, definitely. The spears scale off AP, and nuke for insane amounts of damage with a Rabadon's.

The best way to counter her is to play a champion that summons pets. Yorick and Malzahar are good examples.

This has to be the most obvious troll thread ever. Nid is the easiest champ to counter.

AD nid is actually a powerhouse.
she's ranked the number one pick in solo draft for top lane.

when she builds bulky, she has free movement speed and mobility, and one of her cougar moves deals bonus damage if the enemy is low on health.
she can heal herself, and give herself an attack speed bonus with it.

she's easily able to harass with her aa and as bonus.

people just say ap nid is better because of the massive damage from her spear with a long range hit.

If they are smart enough to hide enough creeps or good at dodging you can simply be aggressive with her range auto attacks force them the react to you usually gets them open thus lands spear. Take gang plank for example for him to harrass with his Q u can force him to be open to land it and trade a spear in the process; any champ with ability like this can be used to your advantage.

Also after lvl 6 you can uses the bushes and use angles just out of their reach for a mind-game of sorts to land more spears.

Ap? Build her right and go all skill points into e and u can out last any caster or you can simply do the above as casters tend to usually have to put themselves out their at least slightly to attempt to ensnare you etc

but then again what I am speaking about is what is nidalee's capabilities really are in how good the person is using her.

Nah they say that because ap nidalee has the best poke in the game.
ad nidalee lots of champs can do that role there is nothing special there except her movement.
Ordinary vs extraordinary
besides all but 1 skill goes off of ap scaling.

AP Nidalee relies on you hitting a single skill shot, not viable unless you are running a poke comp.

To counter AD Nidalee just build Ninja Tabi, Phage and Warden's Mail. Ultimately she's just trying to crush you in lane so that she's so far ahead her ****ty team fight presence doesn't matter. Don't die to her, and just farm safely.

This also do NOT underestimate her execute on her Q it does up to triple damage when you're low on HP, failing to do so can easily get you killed.
